Versatile Veggies

Fried veggies (vegetables) are a must in our house. I find them so easy to make. They are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For breakfast I like them with a fry up of fried eggs, gf bacon, gf sausages and mushrooms for my family.

For lunch they are great mixed with a tin of tuna, or with a poached egg. For dinner they are super delicious with a steak instead of sauce or gravy. Sometimes for an easy dinner I have fried veggies with a poached egg.

Depending on what I have in the fridge will depend on what goes into the fried veggies. It’s a great dish to make when you want to use up vegetables that have been sitting in the fridge…better than wasting them. I do have my favourite vegetables that I like to use, so here’s my recipe.

I tend to make plenty and eat the leftovers for lunches for the next few days.
